Make for the ocean with a voyage around our selected unspoiled Mediterranean islands, holding centuries-old secrets of timeless villages, ancient ruins, and of course offering long sunny days spent in paradise, on sprawling powdery sands and discovering hidden coves. Arrive on the sun-bleached shores of Menorca. Stay off Italy's shores at our Sardinia hostels and it will be love at first sight: kayak to unexplored bays and frolic in emerald waters, hike through lush interior to Tiscali’s nuraghic ruins, and marvel at Bronze Age towers. Then stroll into another world in Malta: a Mediterranean cocktail of human warmth, find fishing boats, and food fusing Sicilian and Middle Eastern flavours; head over to nearby island Gozo for gigantic temples atop sea cliffs. Party on a beach by the bonfire at our hostel in Corfu.
Don’t miss the unforgettable Greek island of Santorini, which has probably been occupying a corner of your imagination or one of your Pinterest wish list boards already. Multi-coloured cliffs, an avalanche of stark white buildings towering like a wedding cake over cobalt blue sea make for a beautiful and surreal picture. We happen to have a number of incredible hostels in all of these island escapes, so get looking and get booking.
